\n* Tragic example in an episode of ''Anime/HellGirl''. In one episode, a brother is taking care of his younger sister who is very slow in the head. However, he becomes tired of dealing with her because he sees her as a burden on him living his own life, especially since his own parents don't want to deal with her either. Its implied that he plans to send her to hell [[spoiler: but she beats him to it by making a deal of her own. A flashback is shown, and when they were younger, he promised to marry her one day to cheer her up after she was being bullied in school. However, being slow minded, she took him seriously and felt betrayed when he tried to leave her behind to live his own life.]]

** Phil and Lil also often cast themselves this way in the games the ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' imagine. While performing their own soap opera, they sound more like their characters are dating than siblings ("Oh, my, Lillian, I cannot live without you!"), and when the babies hold their own prom, the twins go together. Obviously, as babies, they don't fully understand what the relationships they're mimicking ''are''. (3-year-old Angelica seems to have a better grasp of it -- after attending a real wedding makes her want to hold another one, she makes Lil and ''Chuckie'' play the bride and groom.)

This trope is the observation of that childhood fantasy, usually but not always made in reflection on past events, as from an adult (or at least teenage) woman's perspective. Usually the character in question looks back on this attitude and laughs -- a boatload of {{Squick}} and concern elicited from viewers if they still have this attitude and [[MyGodYouAreSerious mean every]] [[BigBrotherAttraction word of it]].

Bear in mind that a lot of the time fans take things a little too literally. The usage of this trope is more common in Japanese-themed works than in Western ones, although it does appear in the West from time to time.

* ''Persona 4 Arena'', where Yu's relationship with Nanako is repeatedly used as a BerserkButton; half the time he's provoked into a fight it's by hearing someone mock how close the two are, with implications that he's hearing truly disgusting things sometimes.

* In one of the later seasons of ''StepByStep'', Lily informs her father Frank that she's gay because she loves her mother Carol. He gives her a somewhat simplistic explanation of the difference between familial and romantic love and asks her if she wants to marry her mother. She tells him that she doesn't. Because she would rather marry him.

* Among the numerous incest jokes in ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' there's a flashback to a magazine cover featuring Buster and his mother Lucile at a dancing competition (I think) with the headline "Why I want to marry my mother".

*** That may have less to do with her being older and more of him avoiding getting together with his adopted sister.
*** And even more to do with him avoiding getting together with ''Lindsay specifically''.

* In ''Film/{{The Secret Garden|1993}}'', Colin insists that he will wed his cousin Mary when they grow up. He even tries to force her to promise him this. When she laughs and says they can't, he reveals that he thinks it is the only way to keep her from abandoning him someday. Of course marrying a first cousin was (and still is) completely acceptable socially in Britain.
